Clear River Investments founder & CEO Aaron Chaus has purchased the penthouse of 240 Centre Street- the iconic former New York City NYPD headquarters located in Little Italy, New York City.
Built-in 1909, the Parisian style co-op includes a trove of beige and off-white decor, plus a clocktower, multiple balconies, and two outdoor spaces with sweeping views of downtown New York City. Altogether, the historic penthouse boasts nearly 5,500 square feet of living space with a total of 4 bedrooms and a whopping 5 bathrooms.
According to The Real Deal, Chaus purchased the property for $10 million- a fraction of the original asking price of $39.9 million back in 2016. The seller was Ahmass Fakahany, the former global president and COO of Merrill Lynch, and his wife Alsun Keogh.
Former owners of the penthouse include fashion designer Calvin Klein and also tennis player Steffi Graff.
